Most Helpful Positive Review miracle in a bottle!!!!
in the summer my skin turns into an oil factory. previous I used a mix of Derma Doctor for my acneic skin, and tartes mattifying primer.
I took a chance when I met the nicest sales associate; who has one if the most amazing flower tatts. anyway; she recommended this primer, the juice CC to mix with my cover fx custom drops since the Tarte primer and Amazonian clay looked like melted cake face and gave me a new skin care routine.
this primer has helped balance out my oily t-zone.& it makes my skin look dewy and fresh versus the matte face I thought I was stuck with becuz of my skin type.
she also recommended the blemish serum, sensitive peel, the oil free SPF and apple cleanser. it's been 3 weeks and my skin looks SO much better. my pores aren't clogged, no new breakouts, even though hormone time is coming. thanks girl at Orland!!!!! and thanks Juice! I'm a convert for life!
Most Helpful Critical Review Better swatched than on face
I'm a new mum & looking for something to brighten my tired looking skin. I have super sensitive dry skin, so natural & gentle hydrating products are a must. I was so excited about Juice Beauty's new makeup line! I swatched the primer on the back of my hand & it felt smooth, soft, moisturized, & looked luminous without being sparkly. I applied it this morning all over my face & then did my usual undereye concealing. My face looked radiant & awake without sparkles (unlike BE Complexion Rescue) & my concealer applied same as it always does. However, within an hour my face started feeling dry & tight, maybe from the anti-aging ingredients? It's been 4.5 hours since application & although my face feels soft to the touch, I can't wait to slather on some moisturizer. The luminosity is gone & my concealed areas look really dry. I think this product probably works great for people with oily, combo, or slightly dry skin. And the new Phtyo-Pigment foundation swatched beautifully over the primer (so sad the foundation is way too matte for my parched skin). It's just not HG for me, which is so sad. I'll try some of the color products of this line (shadow, lip color) but I think the complexion products are unfortunately too dry for me.

Brittany from San Jose, CA
I use this as primer and it is the best illuminating primer I've tried. It is very thin and very illuminating. It leaves my skin hydrated and looking dewy. Also if you have a foundation a bit too dark, mix this primer with that foundation and it'll lighten it up
Holy grail primer
Dani from Texas
I see a lot of negative comments, but this primer worked really well for me!! My favorite I've ever tried.
Don't see any advantage to using this under foundation.
Big D from Kalamazoo
Haven't seen any advantage to adding this to my makeup procedure.
As a primer
Sharyn from Gulf to Bay
Did not meet my expectations as a primer..I will be returning this.
love this product
Megan from Chicago, IL
I love everything about you is beauty
An okay primer
cuddles from Atlanta, GA
I use before foundation. It's okay. Glad I got it 50% off and not full price.
It looks and feels great
Maggie from Collinsville, IL
It observed beautifully, you get a beautiful natural glow. Not glittery just glittery and felt pretty soft on my skin. Did not cause any irritation, and did not get oily at all.
April from WV
I bought this during the 21 Days of Beauty sale and I love it. Gives my skin a radiant glow that lasts all day. Covers imperfections and melts into my skin without leaving a sticky feeling. Beautiful alone or under my foundation. If you've been considering this one, don't hesitate. Great alternative for Farsali liquid glass radiance serum too.
Perfect for ME
Becky from GA
I don't wear much makeup at all this is exactly what I was looking for. When the lady at Ulta recommended it I wasn't so sure but I'm grateful she did because I never would have tried it. I hadn't even heard of J.B. It's lightweight and while it doesn't offer much coverage that's exactly what I wanted. I have clear skin just wanted to even out my skintone. But for some perspective there isn't a whole lot of red to my skin tone. So if you're looking for MORE coverage or a primer for a full coverage makeup look this probably isn't for you.
I'd rather get coal
Jenna from Ohio
I bought this primer with the new juice beauty serum foundation in hopes that they would work well together. They do not. The primer went on well, was illuminating, and didn't break my face out. However, after drying I went to touch my face to see how it felt and it just pilled and came off. I put that aside and tried the foundation on top. I did one side of my face with a brush and the other with a sponge. Both were horrible and cakey. I'd post pictures if I could. Wouldn't even gift it to someone.
Sara from North Myrtle
It is exactly what it says! Illuminating, I love this product and it is safe for sensitive skin. As long as they keep selling I will be buying! So glad I found this product, it was what I needed. Thank you Juice Beauty! My makeup routine I do spf first then lay this on top and then add my tinted moisturizer.
would not buy again
Cindy from WOODFORD
Did not prolong my makeup and seemed to thin foundation look and look shadowy in places.
This is a daily staple, even if I just stay home.
MrsLCW from San Jose, CA.
This is a product I use daily. Even if I just stay indoors and do not put on any make-up. I love how my complexion feels and looks when I use this primer. it is more than a primer. It has made my skin feel soft, smooth and luminous. Not in a glitzy over the top iridescent glow. Just your bare skin, but better.This is my third purchase of this product.
Mel from Salt Lake City
This primer is gorgeous; I can't believe I've never heard anyone talk about this. I've been into glowy products lately and picked this up on a whim during a recent sale. Wow, it really does give you that 'lit from within' glow. I wear it alone or underneath makeup and it looks fantastic both ways. It is a thin, lightweight consistency that sinks into the skin beautifully. Now that I've discovered this hidden gem, I won't be with out it.
Love how this works!
Mrs.LCW from San Jose, CA
I love how this feels on my skin. Absorbs quickly subtle illumination. Third bottle so I obviously love it.
Love this product!
Sophia from WI
I was recommended this product it's a primer and it's got a little shimmer so it can be worn just on its own. I love the shimmer I love how light it is. I do use a foundation but not so much in the summer but the primer everyday
Second bottle I've ordered
Chelsea Lynn from Anza Ca
I use this after moisturizer, before powder and if I need a pick me up in the afternoon for evening outing- I can quickly put more on and refresh my makeup- DOESN'T get cakey or sticky - LOVE this product
Good for Sensitive Skin
Dana from San Diego, CA
I just bought my second bottle of this primer and I am a big fan. I have sensitive skin and break out from different products easily, but this primer leaves my skin feeling super good. I use this as a primer before my foundation or i wear it alone and it gives me a subtle glow. It is not too much illumination but it helps my dull skin look alive!
Ash from California
I received a sample of this when I purchased other products from Ulta. This product comes out liquidy and it smells like a tongue depressor. One thing I did like about it was that it gave a pretty shimmer, however it is meant to be a primer and usually you put makeup over a primer. Personally I would not purchase this product.
Ema from Arizona
Love this foundation! It makes my skin look so nice and isn't oily or drying! It's the perfect combination! Also it has helped the texture and marks on my face go away after a while! Definitely would recommend to a friend!
Not that good
Meh from Maryland
I don't see much difference when I put it on. It doesn't hide pores or any imperfections, and I don't see my foundation blending any better with it.
I haven't looked that much into its skin benefits, so maybe it is okay with that in mind, but there are so many other primers that I've liked better.
Makes your complexion glow
Mrs. LCW from San Jose, CA
I love how this gives my complexion a subtle glow. Not over the top shimmer overly "hi-lighted" which is not for me. Just a slight light catching glow. Love it.
Juice Beauty Illuminate primer
Lee from CA
I normally love this line. However, this product did not work for me this time. You have to spread on face quick. Dries very fast and makes my skin look dry, even though I moisturized. Did nothing for pores. I would not call this a primer just an illuminating/glow.
Wanted to love, unimpressive for price
Andie from Pennsylvania
I've been doing A TON of research to swap out my products for non-toxic/cruelty free options so I gave this primer a try. Right off the bad I didn't love that there was shimmer in it because I usually try to mattify as my skin is naturally oily. When I put it on it just doesn't feel like anything it feel like it does anything at all. Actually makes my face feel a little dried out a tight. I can see that my face has a sheen to it from the shimmer but that's it. Doesn't blur pores, or have that texture that tells me it's going to hold my makeup in place. Unfortunately I can't justify the price with the results so I will be returning. The search continues.
A necessary product
Mamacita from Pittsburgh, PA
It's a tad pricey, but it lasts months! A small amount goes a long way! My skin soaks it up and I love the Light and Luminous way it makes my skin look!
